Cutting edge live electronica meets Punjabi folk!
Technology meets tradition as cutting edge live electronica and digital technologies combine with the traditional sounds of Punjab.
Mercury nominated electronic music producer DJ Swami joins forces with Punjabi folk musicians to create an innovative musical and visual experience, combining cutting edge electronic beats with the raw energetic DNA of Punjab.
Mixing live electronic dance music with Punjabi dhol drums, vocals, stringed instruments and the hypnotic sounding double flute algoza, the powerful distinct rhythms and traditional melodies of the Punjab will interact creatively with live electronic drum machines, synthesiser arpeggios and basslines.
Visual projections of original digital animations and cinematic Punjabi imagery, produced by filmmaker John Minton, will complete a unique musical and visual event.
